BIOMORPHIL

2021

 

Stage piece by Lyn Bentschik, 15'

 

Biomorphil is expanded choreography, inspired by symbiotic social structures found in nature; like coral reefs or forests. In order to survive and thrive, all their tiny inhabitants are in constant movement exchange with each other.

 

With a team of 7 artists of various disciplines, we translated these observations into an artistic context. What we created became our own ecosystem that consists of humans, textile, portable loudspeakers and moving lights.

Biomorphil is a transdiciplinary creature with it’s own life, it’s own logic and it’s own movements.

Biomorphil also served as the practical part for my MA thesis Choreographie als durchdringender Faktor im transdisziplinären Arbeitsfeld expandierter Choreographie
